Average life span?

What's the average life span of aquatic plants? I feel like they live on forever! Are they perennials or annuals or what?

With the proper care most plants just keep growing...and growing (like the energizer bunny) but some species (aponogeton) observe seasonal dormant periods whereby they appear dead but are really just resting and living off of their storage organs (tubers). This is to cope with dry seasons in thier native habitat.
